Uruk Swarm (War of the Ring Block legal)
« on: July 09, 2010, 04:02:05 AM »
I love making Decks in Formats most people don't play. In fact, this might be one of the most strange combination; Poorman's and War of the Ring Block. So here goes  [Uruk] Swarm:

Shadow (33):

4x Tyrannical Uruk
4x uruk Dominator
4x Breeding Pit Conscript
2x Saruman AotDL
1x Invincible Uruk
4x Murderous Uruk
3x Advancing Uruk
3x Watchman Uruk

4x Strange Device
4x Weapon of Opportunity

strategy is pretty simple:

Breeding Pit Conscript + Weapon of Opportunity + Strange Device + Watchman Uruk = massive card drawing

Tyrannical Uruk and Uruk Dominator can be real killers when having a couple of minions in play

Saruman AotDL can help uot, but isn't so necessary.

twilight?  twilight?  we don't need no stinking twilight!  Gil forgets, this is War of the Ring block, there is ALWAYS twilight.  Even the best of choke decks in WotR will add 4 or more twilight, except in region 1.

#$&*@! yeah, he's right!

Seriously now, some of the best Decks use G for Grand x4, LotC and so on, chocke doesn't really stand a chance in WotR Block.

that is the largest difference between pre and post shadows.  The Freeps/sites add way more twilight.

yeah, I mean, if you take a look at a card like Anduin Confluence*, it gives 6 twilight at site 7. But if you play (most extreme example) Sirannon Ruins, you add 10 twilight at the same site. And with travelled leader, you can play that site over and over again, if you like.
